Splice Machine Raises $15M Series B to Power Real-Time Big Data Applications

InterWest Partners and Mohr Davidow Ventures invest in the only real-time SQL-on-Hadoop database

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Splice Machine, provider of the only transactional real-time SQL-on-Hadoop database for Big Data applications, today announced the closing of its $15M Series B round of funding. The investment is led by InterWest Partners, along with returning Series A investor Mohr Davidow Ventures (MDV).

The investment will enable the Company to accelerate its product development and expand its sales and marketing team in preparation for its upcoming public beta offering in Q1 2014. With its real-time, transactional architecture, Splice Machine moves Hadoop beyond batch processing to power real-time operational and analytical applications.

"Unlike any other SQL-on-Hadoop database, only Splice Machine supports real-time, ACID-compliant updates for both operational and analytical applications on standard Hadoop distributions," said Bruce Cleveland, General Partner, InterWest Partners. "With its lockless transactional architecture, Splice Machine fills a critical gap in the SQL-on-Hadoop market."

Splice Machine received its first round of funding from MDV in October 2012. Since then, the Company has tripled its staff, engaged with over 10 charter customers, received multiple accolades, and delivered a limited product release where more than 50 enterprises validated use cases, tested SQL coverage and benchmarked performance.

Splice Machine delivers significant increases in query performance and steep reductions in hardware and software costs for its charter customers. For example, initial results against Oracle databases have shown a 10x increase in price/performance by decreasing response times by 30-50% on significantly less expensive hardware.

"For companies that want to leverage the cost and scaling advantages of Hadoop, they can finally replace traditional relational databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle with Splice Machine because it is a real RDBMS on Hadoop," said Monte Zweben, co-founder and CEO, Splice Machine. "We're confident that this next round of funding will enable us to revolutionize the Hadoop marketplace by powering real-time operational and analytical applications."

"We are excited to double down on our Splice Machine investment," said Bill Ericson, General Partner, MDV. "Now companies that are experimenting with Hadoop can gain significant value from those deployments. We are impressed with the company's progress since its Series A funding, as it has built a seasoned team, a first-of-its-kind product, and a strong voice in the market."

Splice Machine is the only full-featured SQL database on Hadoop with real-time updates and ACID transactions. It provides application developers and database architects the best of Big Data: the scalability of Hadoop and HBase, the ubiquity of SQL, and the transactional integrity of an RDBMS.

The industry is heated with debates on whether adopting private or public cloud is the smartest, best, cheapest, you name it choice. But this debate is missing the mark. Businesses shouldn’t be discussing public vs. private, but rather how can they make the two work together to their greatest advantage. The ideal is to merge on-premise and off-premise into a seamless environment that can be managed as a single entity – a forward-looking stance that will eventually see major adoption. But as of late 2013, hybrid cloud was still “rare,” noted Gartner analyst Tom Bittman. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Marten Mickos, CEO of Eucalyptus Systems, will discuss how public clouds need on-premise satellites to win and, conversely, how on-premise environments cannot be really powerful unless they are connected to the public cloud. It’s not two competing worlds; it’s two dimensions of the same world.
